Helping Learners Become Self-Motivated, Self-Directed, Independent Learners
Keeping learners engaged is a tough challenge. The reality is that many learners moving online from classrooms are simply not adequately prepared or ready for online learning. Until the advent of e-learning, it was enough to deliver cognitive-based (how people process information) solutions and rely on the instructor to deliver the personal approach. As a result, too many online learners lack the self-motivation, learning efficacy, and learning management skills to stay online, finish the course, or learn successfully.
User motivation is something that has to be earned and maintained throughout the learning experience. As training continues to move from the classroom to the Web, the demand for greater self-motivation is growing, even though not everyone may want to learn on the Web. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss how audience analysis methodologies should recognize individual learning differences. Secondly, this presentation discusses how learning environments, presentations, relationships, and measures need to be equipped with strategies for creating engaging learning experiences for all learners.
You Will Learn How To
- Identify the key psychological factors and relationships (emotions, intentions, and social, and cognitive factors) that influence learning.
- Recognize critical interactions between Web learning environments, learning differences, and learning performance
- Refine teaching and instructional design methodologies to maximize user motivation and activity
- Apply brain-based criteria for evaluating effective mass customization
Who Should Attend
- Multimedia Developers
- Instructional Developers
- Instructional Designers
- Content Developers
- Training Managers
Participants will examine todays trend to move learners on the Web and explore why some learners are more successful than others. After exploring sources for individual learning differences, participants will receive specific strategies for designing solutions and environments that support greater self-motivation. In the afternoon, participants will work in groups to create designs and determine evaluation criteria that foster self-motivation and avoid the "demotivators" that frustrate or drain interest. This part of the workshop includes worksheets and guidelines that apply specifically to matching user motivation strategies to fundamental learning differences.
